Excerpt: Chariots of Fire is a 1981 British historical drama film. It tells the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics: Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice. The film was written by Colin Welland and directed by Hugh Hudson. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won four, including Best Picture. It is ranked 19th in the British Film Institute's list of Top 100 British films. The film's title was inspired by the line, "Bring me my chariot of fire," from the William Blake poem adapted into the popular British hymn "Jerusalem"; the hymn is heard at the end of the film. The original phrase "chariot(s) of fire" is from 2 Kings 2:11 and 6:17 in the Bible. The film is also notable for its memorable theme by Greek composer Vangelis, who won an Academy Award for Best Original Score. In 1919, Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross) enters the University of Cambridge, where he experiences anti-Semitism from the staff, but enjoys participating in the Gilbert and Sullivan club. He becomes the first person to ever complete the Trinity Great Court Run - running around the college courtyard in the time it takes for the clock to strike 12. Abrahams achieves an undefeated string of victories in various national running competitions. Although focused on his running, he falls in love with a...

Nicholas Lezard loved London. Then the London 2012 Olympics came along ... Suddenly his beloved city was invaded by über-people in branded sportswear who had contorted their bodies into odd shapes in order to run a bit faster, or throw things a bit further. Not to mention armies of reptilian brand-managers, chancers and corporate cheerleaders all wanting to cash in, as a blameless piece of the East End was turned (at tear-inducing cost) into one huge folly. In The Nolympics Nicholas Lezard gives us the perfect antidote to Olympics fever with a hilarious blow-by-blow account of how he survived its highs and lows, triumphs and soul-destroying boredom. It is a book for anyone who would rather sit in the dark watching TV than ever wave a flag, who was last to be picked for PE, or who just feels that somewhere along the way the Spirit of the Games was smothered by wads of money. It is the only Olympic souvenir you'll ever need.

Für Gaius Bonus, den Zenturio im römischen Feldlager Kleinbonum, geht die haarige Geschichte allerdings alles andere als 'gut' aus.

Aber sie hat einen Traum: das weltgrößte Turnier im Vielseitigkeitsreiten zu gewinnen. Als Casey ein fast verhungertes, halbwildes edles Pferd rettet, verspricht das Unwahrscheinliche wahr zu werden. Und Casey wird alles dazu tun! Aber sie hat nicht damit gerechnet, welche Folgen die Straftat ihres geliebten Vaters für sie haben kann. Und auch nicht damit, dem dunklen, schmelzenden Blick eines Jungen zu begegnen. Sie muss sich doch auf ihre Karriere konzentrieren! Ein atemberaubender Roman, der das Zeug zu einem Pferdebuch-Klassiker hat.
